Fans of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. yesterday celebrated the pickup of the series for a sixth season… but they will have to wait quite a while after Friday’s season finale to see more.
Today during a press call, ABC President Channing Dungey confirmed that Season 6 will air its 13-episode run in Summer 2019.
Could this be to avoid any spoiler conflict with Avengers 4?
“Whatever they have planned, I cannot say,” Dungey said.
And is Season 6 the end? Not necessarily.
“I feel the season we just had was creatively the strongest yet,” Dungey said.
“We don’t plan it as a final season. The show has a loyal passionate base. It does incredibly well in delayed viewing. By putting it on the summer we feel we can super-serve the show’s audience and possibly have it on the air longer,” she added.
